DRN- Album Recording Blog

July 28, 2008

Just a quick on on Dark Room Notes who are over in Hoxton recording their album- they are keeping a day to day blog about anything and everything that is going on…sometimes quite funny so check it out.

Great pic of all of them up on their site….some other good ones of them individually but am not going to link them all here so befriend them and you can see them all! I will link in one for Camera though- a few funny connections to him today but then again this is Ireland where everybody is only twice removed!
